I'm glad Chicklet had a good birthday, enjoy the meal this weekend Chicky family.

Happy birthday to Hostafan's OH, I hope he likes dog slobber! I don't , I agree with Lesley there!

Tomorrow I'm taking OH out to lunch for his birthday and we'll go to the piano shop and I'll buy him a piano stool. We were ill on 25th February which was his birthday, so we're doing it tomorrow.

I bought a garden claw some years ago on a friend's advice, but can't get on with it at all on my clay. Now my clay is better after lots of manure so perhaps I should give it another go. But my garden is so big and it's so small, makes me feel like an ant! For the veggie garden the rotovator is so much more efficient.

This nursery has it listed  http://www.chapelendnurserysperry.co.uk/Roses.html 

But you're right, no one has plants, but several sell them in bouquets.

 I bought a hoe head like this and put a short handle on it. I like to weed kneeling on a mat and I've found it very useful, cutting through the surface of the soil it loosens the soil and digs up weed seedlings. I'm not very good at using a hoe standing up as it gives me back ache and I tend to hoe up the plants as well as the weeds!

Not exactly a garden picture, but I'd forgotten about this amaryllis and left it in a pot for 2 years, only being watered by rain. Then I found it being eaten by a slug so I re-potted it and have been feeding and watering it and look what it's done!

DD, I had extra cake too for the same reason (no, really it was because I'm greedy). I mentioned meeting you today, but don't think anyone noticed.

Welcome TC, glad you are enjoying your garden. It's great when things you've planted come up.

Because he's very popular and 5 million watch his show. He has character, so they say.

Well done Dove's daughter.

I went to the meeting about Open Gardens and Dordogne Damsel was there too. Lots of publicity posters to spread about and how to collect the money. Lots of lovely cake too
